Cheney is speaking out because he senses a real danger of prosecution for authorizing torture. I was with Obama on letting the past stay in the past, what with everything else going on, but I have changed my mind. Cheney’s view is that torture is simply a policy decision to be decided on by the incumbant administration. Torture is wrong, and those responsible must be prosecuted. Obama has to realize this and get a commission going with Mr. Cheney as the main person of interest.
Absolutely. Cheney and others directed torture and many abuses of individual freedoms. Some of this was directed against bad folks, for certain. And most of this was directed against people who were caught up in the madness and were innocent. But either way, it doesn’t matter. You don’t torture, period. We killed people who remain anonymous and the people who did this are not accountable. That needs to be investigated and the people responsible, including Cheney, should be held accountable. We’re a nation of laws, right?
